(P) GSM Rel-98 v7.1.0    1999/06    37 p.

Rapporteur:  ANDERSEN, Niels Peter Skov
Descendant(s):  TS 48.016    

This TS specifies the Network Service used on the Base Station System (BSS) to Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN) interface (Gb interface).

The protocol stack on the Gb interface is defined in the stage 2 TS 03.60. The Network Service entity provides network services to the BSSGP entity specified in TS 08.18. The layer 1 of the Gb interface is specified in TS 08.14.

In this TS, the communication between adjacent layers and the services provided by the layers are distributed by use of abstract service primitives. But only externally observable behaviour resulting from the description is normatively prescribed by this TS.

The service primitive model used in this TS is based on the concepts developed in CCITT Recommendation X.200.
